Description
 
The U.S. Department of Agricultureńˇ╗s (USDAńˇ╗s) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides food and nutrition benefits to low-income households based on a formula that adjusts the benefit amount a household receives based on monthly need. This study assesses the extent to which SNAP reaches the poorest households, also known as benefit targeting, by estimating benefit receipt by annual household income relative to poverty. To conduct this analysis, the report linked 2008-12 SNAP administrative records from New York State to data from the U.S. Census Bureauńˇ╗s American Community Survey (ACS), a primary source for national, State, and local information on the use of SNAP and other public assistance programs. Study findings show that the assessment of SNAP targeting varies by the three measures of benefit receipt examined. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
